im knocking off this skirt!

Not the nasty water color tribal print, probably something in a sea blue or turquoise.

I got my elastic from the Mood fabric store in LA (think Project Runway, but West Coast) its black with a blue, pink, and green rose pattern on it.

I'm thinking of using a black satin lining and lace trim, but that sounds a little gaudy so maybe just a white cotton lining and a neat hem?

Let me know what you think!

carry it all

Why is it that Lulus makes the best bags around? Surfing the web, as usual, I was stuck on Lulus for about an hour.
(beyond cute!)

I've gotten almost all my school purses from Lulu's and a few party dresses as well. It's great. Affordable, and classically pretty. And unlike Forever 21 not absolutely everyone else in town shops there.

summer time lovin, lovin in the summer time

It's MAY. Finally! The best month of the entire year is upon us. What does this mean?


And while it may seem cuh-razy to dedicate an entire post to flip-flops, I really can't help myself. From Chinese descent, flip-flops (also referred to as  thong sandals, zories, slip slaps, thongs, pluggers, toesies, jandals or slippers) are probably the most comfortable shoe known to man.

These (to the left) are from American Eagle Outfitters and I absolutely adore them. They're faux-leather, with an intricate braided silhouette and they come in Mauce Glow, White, and Mushroom.

These are my first very practical/stylish/affordable choice for new summer shoes.

My very impractical/chic/never gonna happen choice would be these gorgeous ninety five dollar D&G logo flip flops.

Cute? Yes. Possible? Not on my budget :(

p.s. Did you hear about Osama Bin Laden? Score for Team Obama! I smell a re-election!
